Name: Dr Carmel Moran

Course: PhD Graduate in Environmental Analysis

Institute: Institute of Technology Sligo

Returning to IT Sligo

I graduated from Institute of Technology Sligo with a PhD in environmental analysis. My academic journey with IT Sligo began a number of years ago. I was a student on the Analytical Chemistry programme. The course included a strong practical and research element. After graduating with honours, I decided that I would like to continue studying and enrolled in a research masters.

From undergraduate to postgraduate

My project was on the uptake of radiation by plants. It was part of a multidisciplinary multi-institutional study on Biosolids, funded by the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions (PRTLI). The overall programme included researchers in TCD, UCD, UL, NUI Galway, NUI Maynooth and the University of Melbourne.

During my studies, I attended UCD for training on advanced instrumentation and analytical techniques. My work progressed well. Therefore, after approximately two years, I transferred to the PhD register. During the course of my studies, I did demonstration and lecturing work at IT Sligo. As a result, I further developed my career. The project was flexible, allowing me to focus on other developments at particular times, while ensuring completion of high quality research.

I am now a lecturer in the Institute and am busy applying for research grants to further my professional career in academia.
